Hi All, I would like to draw on the collective experience of all you keen photographic travellers. I am based in Australia and would like to have a recommendation for a family friendly destination that also has great diving (and particularly photographic) opportunities. This holiday will be for myself (the only diver) my wife, 3 yo son and mother-in-law for this coming July (Australian winter) for 2 weeks. I thought we had decided on Bali (which I was very excited about), but it seems the Australian government has increased the travel alert due to potential terrorism threats which has put off my mother-in-law and wife. I would personally still be happy to go, but my mother-in-law is paying for a significant chunk of the holiday. So, criteria are: - Not too far or expensive to get to from Australia - Safe, family friendly environment - A reasonable level of luxury in terms of accommodation and food (4 star is probably fine) - Nice beaches for the rest of the family to relax on while I dive - Other activities to occupy the family would be a bonus, but if beach and resort is nice enough not a major necessity - Not overly expensive - Great diving and photo ops - I especially like macro (i.e. muck diving) but happy to explore other avenues - A bit of a cultural experience would be a bonus What would you guys recommend? I should mention that my wife and I have spent quite a bit of time in Fiji, so we'd prefer to go somewhere else. Maybe another south Pacific island? I was also thinking that somewhere in the Philippines could be good, but Anilao seems to only really cater for divers and doesn't look like it has particularly nice beaches. Ideas? Thanks in advance.
